The highly venomous cobra, which made headlines after she escaped from her holding cage in the Bronx Zoo last Friday, was captured Thursday morning in a dark corner of the Reptile House, according to Bronx Zoo officials.

During her week on the lam the Egyptian Cobra has become a world-wide celebrity, and a joke Twitter account set up on the snake’s behalf now has about 200,000 followers.

The Egyptian Cobra’s venom is so poisonous, it can kill a human in just fifteen minutes. So, while many have cheered the cobra’s new-found freedom, it’s probably a good thing this snake is back in her cage.
